shinjuku thief - matte black

Matte Black sounds like, well like a musical interpretation of matte black. It is deep ominous soundscapes of rumbling bass and well nothing else. Now before this starts to sound bland, it isnít at all, I tell ya. It is glorious rumbling noises, deep belchings of droning dust particles. Pebbles lain over the sand of our minds, shifting, filching, bashing our heads off of black, and then more black. Incredibly ominous, but really quite hard to say anything about. Ominous in a very good way, and nice to listen to in the dark, and somewhat frightening. Organic rumblings of deep melancholic agony, or some other pretentious line. Very successful as a portrait of a colour, and an intricate listening experience.
